Lighted Wall Switch
I have two rooms in my home that, if the lights are left on in error, you have no way to know they're on without re-entering the rooms or by examining the wall switch position. The switches are outside the rooms. They're a walk-in safe, and the furnace room. Because they're entered so seldom, if a light is left on by mistake, it could remain on for weeks, even months.
I know there are lighted switches but they're intended to help you find the switch in the dark. I'm looking for a switch that's lighted only when it's in the on position. The light would need to be bright enough to be seen in daylight conditions. Does such a switch exit, and if so, where could I find one? I've looked on the internet and found nothing.
I have neutral and ground wires in each of the switch boxes. If necessary, I could mount an additional switch box next to the light switch, and install a light in it, but I'd rather not do so as the walls are all paneled (stiles & rails) and the panels would have to be chopped up. If there's not a switch that will do, is there a light I could mount in this extra switch box? Of course, I need a solution that would comply with electrical codes. Any help would be appreciated.
